Wicked Pictures Signs Alektra Blue, Mikayla Mendez

CANOGA PARK, Calif. - Wicked Pictures has signed brunette beauties Alektra Blue and Mikayla Mendez to exclusive performance contracts.

"My goal is to become a great actress, and there's no better place to accomplish that than Wicked, " said Blue, a 2008 AVN award winner featured in the April 2008 issue of Penthouse. "I love the challenge of pushing myself as a performer."

A native of the Southwest whose athletic interests include soccer and skating, Blue has appeared in over 100 adult movies since entering the industry in 2004. Known for her work with Zero Tolerance and Third Degree Films, she recently wrapped roles for Wicked in Brad Armstrong's big-budget feature Fallen and Stormy Daniels' Predator 2

"I've been a fan of Wicked from the beginning, and I always admired their movies," said Blue. "I'm incredibly grateful for this opportunity, and there's no other company I'd want to commit to on this level."

Exotic Mikayla Mendez just added her surname this morning. Under the single name Mikayla, she recently appeared on the cover of the Wicked blockbuster Bad Girls.

"I've worked on several Wicked movies in the past, and I've realized this is definitely where I want to be," said Mendez, a Santa Clarita native whose Mexican heritage makes her the first full-fledged Latina Wicked Girl. "Their approach to condom use has always been appealing to me, as has the professionalism of their sets. Every time I freelanced for Wicked in the past, I could see that I was growing as an actress and a performer. I can't wait to see what the future holds."

Wicked Pictures owner and president Steve Orenstein sees "superstar potential" in both girls.

"Alektra and Mikayla are stylish, unique individuals," said Orenstein. "These are girls who have consistently impressed us with everything they've done, from their performances to how they conduct business and the way they relate to their fans. While their earlier work has certainly been solid, I think everyone's going to be pleasantly surprised at what these ladies achieve moving forward."
